Community Safety Partnership
The Crime and Disorder Act 1998 placed a joint responsibility upon specific agencies to work together, and with other agencies within the community, to develop and implement strategies to protect their communities from crime and help people feel safe.
As a leading member of the Castle Point and Rochford Community Safety Partnership (CSP), Castle Point Borough Council is firmly committed to tackling crime and disorder and reducing the fear of crime in the Borough.
Other statutory members are from the following key agencies:
Comparing Castle Point and Rochford Districts with other Essex Districts in October 2017 indicates 5.6 crimes per 1000 residents for Castle Point and 3.2 crimes per 1000 residents for Rochford. Castle Point and Rochford are below the average of 6.1 across all Essex Districts.
Each year the CSP must produce a Strategic Assessment from an analysis of community safety information and data across Castle Point and Rochford District.
This process identifies the main local priorities which the CSP will focus on over the next 12 months (April 2018- March 2019)
